Despite the numerous crime fiction books this author has written, Paul Anthony considers Moonlight Shadows to be his favourite, and closer to ‘true crime’ than the genre might suggest. Sometimes stories just fly out of the mind at lightning speed just like this one did.
When Conor is betrayed, he spends the night hidden in the bracken surrounded by security forces hunting him down. As shadows flicker in the moonlight, he realises who is responsible. With his unit destroyed, Conor sets out for revenge. But dark unspoken forces are at work and the track goes cold. A decade later, Pegasus, a discredited British Intelligence Agent, produces a mysterious piece of computer software and demands reinstatement. The enigmatic software, carried in a memory stick, threatens to destabilise the world’s economy should it fall into the wrong hands. Assured of peace, desperate to be home to be near her loved ones, Pegasus returns only to find herself plunged into a world where he who holds the software holds the future of the world in their hands.
A breathtaking international chase involving terrorists, spies and criminals ensues with greed, corruption, dishonesty and mistrust, uncovered in the most powerful of places as the need to secure the memory stick dominates proceedings, twists, and conspires to destroy the human relationships that so many take for granted. Only Davies King, a chess-playing, barfly of a detective, and his trusty team, seem capable of bringing sanity to the lawless corruption threatening the very fabric of a cyberspace driven society.
Surely all the men and women of power can be trusted with such responsibilities, can’t they? Or is one of their number a traitor to his country, a traitor to his calling….. A traitor of the worst kind. And there’s only one traitor…. Isn’t there?
